Durability

    The durability of alpine ski-bindings is essential toward consistent function — retention, release, edge control and entry / exit.

    No matter how hard we try to preserve the newness of our skis — we might drop our skis on concrete or pavement.  Ski bindings must Maintain their function even when something like this happens.  Sometimes, skis are stacked on top of each other in the luggage-locker of a bus or they become knocked against each other on the outside of a gondola.  Bindings must operate as planned even after repeated hits and bumps.  Exposure to ski wax, ice, mud, road-salt — bindings must perform as planned (see Footnote).

    International standard ISO 9462 tests, in-part, for durability — but Howell SkiBindings go further. 

    Howell SkiBindings are rigorously tested in the field during all kinds of weather, snow and rogue conditions — deploying 4-decades of experience.

    This is why only Howell SkiBindings come with a Lifetime Limited Warranty.

Footnote:   We require that skis (and their bindings) never be transported on a car's external ski-rack.  This is perhaps the worst environmental exposure to which a binding could be subjected.  No binding will function properly after being exposed to extensive road salt, cinders or sand.  Howell SkiBindings are not covered under warranty if they are transported on an external ski-rack.
